Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA)

The CNA is the professional responsible for many services for the patient, most importantly personal care.
A hospice CNA helps with various personal care issues, such as changing bedding, changing clothes, bathing hospice patients, and helping with hygiene routines such as brushing teeth, washing hair, and keeping wounds and bandages clean. Palliative care patients who undergo chemotherapy often have problems related to oral and dental care that might require assistance.
